#1153 Bug in user-specific file paths stored in @comment

next release

Long ago, I accidentally introduced a bug in the way JabRef stores the user-specific file directory setting in BibTeX files. If the user-specific path is set, JabRef introduces an @ character in the setting.
This is not allowed in BibTeX and causes BibTeX to cough errors on compilation of the bibliography.

I plan to fix this very soon.

    I have fixed the bugs 1153 and 1150 (duplicates) that I originally
    introduced a long time ago. Retained (read) handling of legacy setting
    containing the problematic '@'. To get rid of the setting containing
    '@', users must manually remove this line from their database file. The
    latter is not a bug but an intended feature.

    Seems to be indeed fixed (at least in the current development version).
